Crimea ready to supply electricity to Ukraine
Surplus electricity generated in Crimea can be supplied to Ukraine but only after restoration of power transmission lines in its territory, Russia’s Deputy Prime Minister Andrei Cherezov said.
"[Power transmission] lines that were blown up remain as such," the official said on the sidelines of the Russian Energy Week Forum.
He recalled that negotiations were held last year between Russia and Ukraine, where Kiev expressed readiness to restore its infrastructure, but there have been no developments by now to that end.
"This is not our segment. Everything remains as is on our part. We are ready to make a connection at any time if the need arises and if Ukraine is ready to do that," TASS cited Cherezov as saying.
